don't know the "Why" ,
Seems as if they are locking down the 70"+ market to have the Display Enthusiast pay the most IMO
as they now have the market cornered on the 70"+ displays ,
the 632 line is a great deal as they don't have the Quattron panel (the 4 color pixel ) the 632's have the 3 color pixels , there are some who swear that the 4th color (yellow)is useless . I have a 3 color pixel 10g X-gen Sharp (88UM) 60" & I love it !
& have a 632 80" coming to the house next week
ADD in the fact that this feeling is now spreading that the 2011 might be a better buy & then the older 2011 models will disappear quite quickly
With the discounts that are appearing@ Costco that will further how fast they disappear
